The Little Train at Mandarin Florida

Mr. Leynes,

I was so excited when my brother sent this site to me. I grew up on Beauclerc Rd in a family of five kids and almost every Sunday our parents would take us to ride “The Little Train”.

For the longest time I thought that Mr. Ward was saying “Ward” when he shouted “All Aboard”. I was five at the time and imagined that I was traveling through Europe even though I was not sure where or what Europe was. I imagined so many things. I think back on that time and remember how safe and loved I felt. Being a part of a family who was able to buy a ticket to anywhere was priceless.

 Thanks for doing this!
